love apple

Wonderful re – issue of a 6 song rehearsal tape, never intended as a record release but irresistable beautiful : 3 ladys with incredible voices, 6 soul classics, one LP called “Love Apple” (numero, 2012)

Buy it and listen to all songs at numero:

“In the late ’70s, three do-right women from Cleveland forged a brief partnership with Ohio’s everything man, Lou Ragland. Unlike the prefabricated singing combos of the day, Lily Pearson, Annette Warren, and Avetta Henry swapped lead duties as situation demanded. When a Ragland-centric publicity stunt preempted a concert appearance, Love Apple disintegrated, abandoning this rehearsal tape at Thomas Boddie’s cherished Eastside studio. Devoid of bass, the sparse instrumentation accentuates each vocalist’s aptitude, showcasing some of Ragland’s finest songwriting in the process. Never intended for release, Love Apple’s six song sketch is the perfect companion to NUM042 Lou Ragland: I Travel Alone, bringing Ragland’s unique musical vision into sharper focus. ”
